She received a new name according to our customs. That was the Japanese martyr "Marina of Omura". She was a saint who was martyred bravely in her love and trust in the Lord while helping missionaries and many believers. She was the first woman to be martyred in Japan. Our association also hopes to be a helper to those who are in front of us here in Japan. We are in contact with people who are sick, poor, refugees, and those who have no one to talk to. We are a small association, but we hope to live the heart of the foundress and live as a carriers of the Lord's love to the fullest for those we come into contact every day. This is the day when we confirm that desire together with the new entrants.
We also renewed our own vows at the same time. When we are busy in our daily lives, we strive to stay centered on the day we made our first made vows. This day helps us to renew our original spirit of striving to follow in the Lord's love. Some of our members have been renewing for decades. Some members have changed their work and are no longer able to move as much as they would like, and some members have to ask for help from their sisters. But I believe that they have felt anew the passion they felt when they made their first made their vows.
I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him.
Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.
If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be.
